Have You Finished Your Christmas Shopping?

'Cause, I totally haven't. No, for reals, you guys, this is serious. I'm sort of in panic mode. I don't have a lot of gifts to buy, but the ones I need to buy are sort of important ones. *sigh* 'Tis the Season! HA! BUT...I am having super lots of fun creating cards, still, so that's a good thing!

This is a super fun card created with Echo Park papers and a SUPER fun Scrolls Work Stamps image! It's called Santa's Suit Set and it comes with the jacket I used here and Santa's hat and boots, too!

Santa's Suit


I colored his jacket with...wait for it.... SHARPIE! Yup! That's how I got that beautiful vibrant red! I love it! Then I added silver paint pen to his belt buckle and finished his trim with some Stickles! And...I don't know if you noticed, but I went a little old school and used some of my shaped eyelet stash on this card, too! I love the way they look!!! So fun!

Sooooo....now that I made this adorable little card with Santa's adorable little coat...he's gonna show up and take care of the rest of my shopping, right? Right. K. Good. I feel better now! HA! Have a fabulous Monday!

That card is super cute!

I have all of my shopping done. We don't really exchange gifts with many people. Most of my shopping is for the kids. Now I just have to wrap it all....not looking forward to it.

I am mostly finished my shopping. Does that count?
Your card is cute. I don't have copics (the marker of choice this year) so I only use sharpies :)

Brittney said...

This is so cute - and who needs Copics when you can use a sharpie!
